That we even had to ask the casinos in the first place to STOP cashing welfare $$$$$$$??? That it isn't a CRIME to spend FREE TAX WELFARE $$$$$$$$$ at the casino in the first place? These are the same casinos who don't pay gas tax. Sales tax. We as a state due to criminals in office who set those sweet deals up years ago miss out on hundreds of MILLIONS of tax $$$$$$$$$$ then the casinos have the GREED to cash welfare EBT cards? Just unreal. When it comes to our government just keep the money flowing with no stewardship because the working man will always keep paying for their actions. Had enough yet? Well ......... have you? BTW. Two casinos will continue to cash the cards.
